How to Enable SSH on my PIX / ASA by F1lby
Posted: 28 Mar 06

To get SSH working on a PIX / ASA Firewall we need to generate a key - in this example it will be a 1024 bit key:

Conf t

crypto key zeroize rsa
domain-name cisco.com
crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024
write memory

Next of all we need to enable SSH on the appropriate interface(s) and address(es)

ssh xx.xx.xx.xx inside
ssh timeout 30

This enables SSH on the INSIDE interface and makes it available to address xx.xx.xx.xx
ssh timeout sets the SSH inactivity timer to 30 mins - after 30 mins of inactivity the session is terminated.
